Over the fence
When doing your back-to-school shopping, please remember to save those shoeboxes, as they are perfect for filling with items for Operation Christmas Child. Filled boxes should be dropped off at the Thurman Town Hall during regular business hours. Gail Needham will pick up filled boxes and prepare them to be shipped overseas. This mission sends shoeboxes filled with pens and pencils, hard candy, small toys and perhaps a shirt for children who may receive nothing on Christmas morning. Let’s beat last year’s number of filled boxes — we can do better than 13!
